RStudio 1.1 was released.

@smallmouse why would you mark this as out of date? RStudio 1.1 is still a preview and this versions installs just fine. If you have problems to install gstreamer0.10-base, try to create the package manually instead of using pacaur. gstreamer0.10-base fails to install when using pacaur (see comments in

what if add conditional dependencies?
this will be more handful, IMHO

ok, this clears up some confusion. however, with the deb version of this package, gstreamer0.10 is still a dependence. and I assume it is better to have a build for both 32 and 64 bit architectures at this point, even though arch deprecated the 32-bit one.

The 1.0.153 version works without gstreamer0.10. However the rstudio team only published a 64 bits package (here : for debian 9 or Ubuntu 16. I tested it, it works fine and is no more dependent of the gstreamer0.10 package.

Other 1.0.153 packages (for Ubuntu 12.04 or Fedora) still need gstreamer0.10 but they are released both for 32 and 64 bits architectures.

If the PKGBUILD is modified, it won't work anymore for 32 bit architectures. If you work on a 64 bits installation, you can use this one:

@dviktor: I am not all that sure that gstreamer0.10 is not a dependence. I removed gstreamer0.10 from PKGBUILD and installed the package. When I run rstudio-bin I get:

/usr/lib/rstudio/bin/rstudio: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Hey, 1.0.153 version should not depend on gstreamer0.10 package anymore... Please fix the PKGBUILD

hopimet commented on 2017-07-24 11:12

f course you can.
Here is a new version of the PKGBUILD for the stable version 1.0.153 (here:
I have not still tested it because I have not access to the computer where rstudio is intalled. It will work only on 64 bits architecture.

There may be a bug at this line: tar xpf data.tar.xz -C "$pkgdir" because the structure of the deb is different of other versions where the file is data.tar.gz).

Yes, the 64 bits version 1.0.153 for Debian 9 / Ubuntu 16 (the previous link in this post) works without the old gstreamer0.10 package.

There is stable v1.0.153 out, does this avoid dependency with gstreamer0.10 then?

chendaniely commented on 2017-07-23 21:59

@hopimet mind if I take your PKGBUILD file for the rstudio-desktop-preview-bin package?

The preview version of Rstudio has slowed down this year, they pretty much release the preview edition along with the regular 'final' version at the same time.
There used to be a preview update every Friday.

I'm almost debating if I should make another package for their daily channel. But it's going to have to be able to live concurrently with the non-daily builds just in case something breaks horribly.
